Captain Frank Ruhstaller was California’s Premier Pioneer Brewer.
He embodied the Spirit of California, partnering with local hop
and barley farmers to grow the finest ingredients for his beers.
131 years later, Ruhstaller remains committed to the Captain’s
legacy. Our beer is made with California hops and barley, grown by
farmers we know and trust like Sean McNamara of Winters.
When you enjoy a Ruhstaller, you experience the rich, nuanced
flavors only California-grown ingredients can deliver.
